The Munsters reboot coming to NBC

Everett Collection
The network previously planned to bring   The Munsters   back in 2012 with   Hannibal   and   American Gods‘ showrunner Bryan Fuller at its helm. At the time, Fuller described   Mockingbird Lane   as “an American Harry Potter.” NBC’s latest version, however, will be a half-hour sitcom, like the original. NBC ultimately decided not to move forward with the show, though they did air the pilot as a Halloween special that year. Titled   Mockingbird Lane,   the series was set to star Jerry O’Connell, Portia de Rossi, and Eddie Izzard. Despite those ratings,   the show went on to become a cultural icon for its wacky premise as a typical family sitcom that replaced humans with monsters. NBC will reboot the series with the help of Seth Meyers and   Odd Mom Out   creator Jill Kargman, EW can confirm. According to Deadline, which first reported the news, this revival will follow a similar premise, with “members of an offbeat family” struggling to coexist with non-monsters in “hipster Brooklyn.” Kargman is writing the script and also executive-producing alongside Meyers. The Munsters   first premiered in 1964 on CBS and ran until 1966, when it was canceled due to low ratings. After more than 50 years away,   The Munsters   are coming back to TV. Show Full Article
